Color Your World


by Phoebe Leggett


Chase away the dull winter gray with colorful cups and pretty flowers.

African Violets are easy to care for and easy to find in hardware stores, grocery stores, and plant nurseries.

Choose small plants so they’ll fit into the coffee cup.

Colorful Coffee Cups



  • Set the tap water out the night before, so the chemicals can evaporate. Violets aren’t fond of chemicals.
  • Water the violets whenever the  soil is dry. Make sure to water underneath the leaves, as water dropped on the leaves will cause them to become spotty and fall off.
  • Choose a spot near a window to display the flowers.
  • This is a fun project that will color your bedroom or anywhere you choose to display the plants.
